New introduction for 2020
Vista Alegreâ€™s Constellation dâ€™Or, a new launch for 2020, showcases the Portuguese porcelain authority’s incredible eye for dÃ©cor and detail. Deep blue combines with gold accents on a base of stark white to make the 23-piece collection a treat for the eyes… and table.
But it is not just the classic colourways, Vista Alegre has employed ago-old technique in the dÃ©cor too.
Explaining the process, Vista Alegre says: â€œThe application of gold in pieces, defining various textures, was used in the porcelain of SÃ¨vres in the late 18th century. Known as â€œpointillÃ© dâ€™orâ€ or â€œsablÃ© dâ€™orâ€ (or even â€œpartridge eyeâ€), these motifs mixed golden dots with shades of blue fire, forming small circles. The Constellation dâ€™Or service recreates these geometric patterns and modernises them, keeping the same decorative technique. On the backdrop of white heavens embossed with gold, the blue-gold constellationsâ€™ shines forth.”
Comprising everything from a vase, to a centre piece, to a sugar box, the complete collection â€“ with its intricate geometric patterns â€“ is a gorgeous modern interpretation of classic motifs. Â
